Did Jay Z Turn Down Kanye West’s Best Man Offer Over Reality Show Filming?

According to the rumor mill, Jay Z may have changed his mind in being Kanye West’s best man at his upcoming nuptials to Kim Kardashian because…well…the wedding will be filmed for 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians.’

Reports claim the Roc Nation mogul agreed to be Ye’s best man initially, which would also see an inclusion from his wife Beyoncé and daughter Blue Ivy, but with the wedding set to be filmed for the E! TV reality show, the Carters want no parts of it.

“Jay is Kanye's closest friend so he wants him to be best man,” a source told gossip outlet the Daily Star newspaper. “Jay agreed initially but had one condition – under no circumstances can there be any reality TV shows filming him, his wife, Beyoncé or daughter Blue Ivy during the ceremony.”

The source also claims Beyoncé would be "mortified" if she was shot for "trashy TV."

We’re sure Kanye would choose Jay Z over reality TV, so we will just have to wait and see how this story unfolds.

For now…just a rumor!
